You guys…if you aren’t apart of a local home furnishings/decor Facebook group you NEED to find one like yesterday! Seriously, I don’t know what I did before I was invited to be in one. Why am I telling you this? Well, that group was what made it possible for me to get my new kitchen table and chairs.
You see, we had a perfectly acceptable dining set in here already. We’d had it for a number of years and there was nothing really wrong with it except that once we had the kitchen cabinets painted and the new flooring put in, suddenly the wood tone of the table went way more orange-y than it had ever looked before. But I didn’t feel like I could really justify buying a new set. And honestly, I had no desire to try and strip it down and refinish it. I was tired. My husband was tired. And we just weren’t up for one.more.project.
So, I decided that I would try and sell our old set in the awesome FB group and only spend that amount plus a little bit more that I had squirreled away.
I took the photos, uploaded them to the group, set my price and BAM! The old dining set was sold in less than 5 minutes!
We were ready for a style that blended in more with the rest of the house and chairs that felt more open and weighed less than our old ones we move them around quite a bit when we have guests over. These new chairs are even stackable!
The finish on the tabletop has a wonderful weathered look and it’s a bit hard to tell from this photo but the slats are all slightly uneven which gives it a much more worn in feel.
And with the sun streaming in through the windows in our breakfast nook after a long stretch of very dark and dreary weather, I’m so enjoying how bright and fresh this space looks now.
Of course, $12 worth of flowers from Trader Joe’s definitely helps to brighten things up too.
Now, I’m hoping that I’m going to have my kitchen makeover reveal ready for you by the end of this week and I can’t wait to show you how drastically different these rooms look now!
Until then, thank you for meeting me here at the fence today,
